Reliably informed

If you break a glass and put it back together, can you ever fully repair the cracks? Sunderland’s Sara Leilah (an alumni of We Make Cultures Young Musicians Project) presents her debut single, Broken Glass. The plaintive piano ballad reflects on a past event that leaves our titular shards stored in a jar on a shelf.

Lyrical couplets like, “stars are burning out, light fades away”, and “we have our future, but the past is done”, lay down a romantic juxtaposition where the broken memory stored in the jar suggests a keenness to revisit in the future. A nice place to be. While the track is basic and forlorn there is enough in the delivery and lyrical content for us to keep a watchful eye on the talented youngster.
